New Production and Distribution Facility
IMEG provided structural engineering design services for Riddell Sports Group’s largest office and manufacturing building. The 347,205-sf facility in North Ridgeville, OH, houses two floors of offices, a fitness center, large break and training rooms, a common area with computer kiosks, 174,000-sf of manufacturing space, and 146,000-sf of warehouse space.
Engineers provided structural design for the facility, which won an ENR 2017 Best Projects award in the manufacturing category. Construction
of the facility required 1,000 tons of steel for the support structure and 12,500 cubic yards of concrete. The facility is temperature controlled to accommodate changes in the weather and has a large, high-efficiency thermal oxidizer to filter and reduce overall VOC emissions from paint, ensuring the building is in line with state environmental standards.
The facility also houses Riddell’s NFL and college team football helmet collection and serves as the distribution center for gear and apparel.
